While Radar released a report earlier in the week that Fey and Poehler would each make between $2 million and $5 million to host the show, those numbers were debunked by both comediennes’ reps, saying Radar’s figures were “grossly exaggerated.” If those numbers had been correct, Fey and Poehler would have been on track to out-earn any host in awards show history, with the exception of Billy Crystal, who reportedly scored $5 million for hosting the Oscars.
Vanity Fair, who received the statement from the reps, then went on to report that Fey and Poehler will likely make in the “low six figures” for the 2014 Globes.
Whatever. We’re just excited the hilarious duo is back.
EARLIER: Well, this is exciting news. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have been confirmed to host back-to-back Golden Globes for the 2014 and 2015 ceremonies. The fab funny ladies hosted the Globes earlier this year to great success.
This now obviates any possibility Fey and Poehler would host the Oscars in 2015. (Ellen DeGeneres is the 2014 host). In our TOH! interview with Fey earlier this year, she commented on the Oscars, applauding host Seth MacFarlane: “The Oscars is the hardest job there is, it’s a tough room. Seth did great!”
The 2014 Globes are slated for January 12.
